The objective of this paper is to present the CDMA Development Group's (CDG) view on key topics with respect to third generation (3G) and address some of the more technical aspects of the cdma2000 3G proposal. The paper also documents the ongoing activities within the CDG and standards bodies that are taking place toward cdmaOne evolution and 3G standards.
cdmaOne has clearly demonstrated its superiority in the second generation wireless marketplace. In September 1998, only three years after the first commercial deployment, there were 16 million subscribers on cdmaOne systems worldwide. Over 35 countries have either commercial or trial activity ongoing. The CDG has over 100 members of whom 40% are companies based outside of North America, testimony to the truly international reach of CDMA.
The CDG established the Advanced Systems Initiative to provide a growth path for cdmaOne to next generation systems. Primary goals of the initiative include development of a worldwide standard that meets IMT-2000 requirements and other services identified as critical to operator members, and graceful evolution to next generation cdmaOne systems.
The Advanced Systems Initiative is a means for CDG members to define the requirements and priorities for cdmaOne and to collaborate with regional and international standards organizations to meet industry objectives. CDG members have been involved with IMT-2000 since its inception.
In addition to the work of the Advanced Systems Initiative, the CDG leadership is actively engaged in industry-wide efforts on 3G. The CDG is ensuring the rapid evolution of cdmaOne and the development of cdma2000 to meet the needs of operators worldwide, enabling the availability of 3G products and services beginning in 1999.
